January 25 in San Antonio history...

1940
Having equaled a 54-year-old record with eight consecutive days of subfreezing temperatures, winter’s icy siege on San Antonio showed no sign of abatement today.

1980
After many complaints, the statue of St. Anthony de Padua has been placed on a new pedestal along the Riverwalk.  The statue, a gift to the city from Portugal for Hemisfair, was removed from his original location near the Marriott hotel and carelessly laid upon a concrete slab without protection while construction was taking place in the area.

1985
Ground is broken on the new 239,000 square-foot campus of Texas Military Institute located near Camp Bullis.  Scheduled to open in the fall of 1986, the 60-acre site will include a chapel, media center, computer center, classroom centers, athletic fields, a student center, a fieldhouse/gymnasium/natatorium, residence units for 150 boarders, a fine arts center with a 500-seat theater and administrative staff homes.
